Crazy for curly fries:

Tastes like Taste of Tacoma 2006.

Will you start a thread questioning the Taste of Tacoma? It’s coming up soon and I personally think it has nothing to do with the “taste” of Tacoma considering the very minuscule percentage of actual standing restaurants in Tacoma that participate. I am curious why and what others think about this ” carnie-style” food festival.


I covered Taste of Tacoma in 2005. There were nearly 50 food vendors – mostly caterers but a few restaurants, too. Vendors from the 206, the 425 and 360 area codes outnumbered 253s from Tacoma. I did not attend TOT2006.


Remember last year’s Showcase Tacoma? That was a real good taste of Tacoma.
